Heat Transfer Printing

Heat Transfer Printing is the recommended type of printing for the customization of individual names and numbers on objects.

Apart from individual names and numbers, you can also choose to print full-coloured images using the thermal transfer printing method. We can also print reflective prints using heat-pressed printing.

Our methodology involves using our heat press machine, along with a heat transfer vinyl (transfer medium) to imprint sharp designs onto fabrics. Aside from the traditional vinyl heat transfer printing, we can perform alternative digital heat transfer printing methods at your discretion. This usually involves the use of an inkjet printer as well as a different type of heat transfer paper — which is a different heat transfer method in and upon itself.

In order to help you better make your decisions, our team at Imprint Singapore has summarised the advantages and disadvantages of our main heat transfer printing method.
